Space Battleship Yamato

Synopsis: In 2199, five years after the Gamilas launch attacks on Earth, the planet has been ravaged by the aliens' radiation bombs and the remnants of humanity have moved underground. One day, former pilot Susumu Kodai discovers a message capsule sent from the planet Iskandar that tells of a device that can remove the radiation from the Earth's surface. The United Nations of Space Administration rebuilds the battleship Yamato, with a new type of propulsion system - the Wave Motion Engine. This enables her to make the long voyage to Iskandar and back in hopes of saving the Earth. Within 73 days, the radiation will drive the rest of humanity to extinction and the Gamilas will inhabit the Earth.

Locked on Gamilas ship.

How long?

All Units,

Clear cannon trajectory.


Let them come in close.

Five seconds.

Fire shock cannons!


They're stronger than our data says!

That's brand-new data!

How did they shift?

We're hit aft!

Losing thrust!

Turrets 1 and 2 hit!

Fuyuzuki destroyed!


Quick! Get that fire out!

We have no ship

that can beat them.

Message from yukikaze.

We're getting wiped out, captain.

We'll cover you. Get out of here.

Kodai! Don't be a fool!

I've never wished more

than to be of use to you.

You've still got things to do!

Captain Okita...

...we're proud to have fought

alongside you.

Sanada...go get 'em!

Don't, Kodai!


The infinite reaches of space...

...a realm of silent light.

Stars die, and stars are born.

Yes. The universe is alive.

But at this moment...

...the end is near for one planet.

Space Battleship Yamato

Five years ago... unknown enemy appeared

in the region of mars...

...and began raining meteorite bombs

down upon the earth.

The year is 2199.

The beautiful blue earth

is polluted by radiation...

...and humanity stands

on the verge of extinction.

People have fled underground,

struggling desperately to survive...

...but with no hope left... they simply sit

and wait for the end.

You're one of them damn fools,

aren't you.

Looking for metal scraps

to give to the defense force.

What good'll that do?

We're beat, and you know it.


That guy...

...trades it for stuff

from his brother in the forces.

Drugs, alcohol...

The forces? Is that right?


You trade rare metals, right?

So that's what you're up to, huh?

Hook me up, with that brother of yours, OK?

What's that for?!

Lithium, 50 centimeters down.

Radiation density 14 sieverts.

Twice fatal dosage. You will die.

I know that, analyzer.


Flying object! Incoming!

This is the capsule

that was recovered.

What's that?

It's like...


Who found it?

A civilian salvage hunter.

His suit was ripped open

and he took a high dose of radiation.

They're washing him down now

but he probably won't survive.


Hold it!

Keep still!

Hold onto him!

He seems fine now, though.

Stop! You'll contaminate

the entire ship!

Are you captain okita?


You used yukikaze as a shield.

Then you ran away.


Answer me!

Kodai, stop it!


Mamoru Kodai was my brother.

You're Susumu Kodai?

You used him as a shield...

...sacrificed your whole escort,

and you're still alive?

Doesn't that bother you?

Why should it?

Don't make me laugh.

That's enough!

That hurt, damn it...

Yuki Mori?

What would a civilian know,

Mr. Kodai?

You weren't there!

Come quietly!

Let go off me!

Hands off!


Sometimes one has to make it back.


Saito! Go easy on him!

He's an injured man.

I'm sorry, Captain Okita.

I didn't mean that to happen.

I went and told him

how Captain Kodai died.

Dr. Sado...I understand.

I'm sorry.

Anyway... is he still alive

after a fatal dose of radiation?

Yes. He should be dead.

You had a hard time.

We were wiped out.

We have no way

of resisting Gamilas.

And we don't know

what they want or who they are.

They're tough.

As we fight, they study us

and just get stronger.

And we can't keep up with them...

And so...

...the time comes when

we must evacuate earth...

...with a chosen few.

On that subject, sir...

... I ask you for this ship.


Not so a selected elite

can live a few days longer...

...but to go on a journey of hope.

In that way at least

humanity will not be in despair...
